I hope that the Ogden scholars will see the benefit of giving something back and doing good in society. I believe that they do understand that the opportunity to give back is a good thing and I hope that they all have that opportunity. Sir Peter Ogden, Founder and former Chair of The Ogden Trust
Once you become an Ogden scholarship holder, prize-winner or intern, you will be invited to join the Ogden Trust Alumni Association.
Membership of the Alumni Association is for life; we want to support our scholars not only during the period of their scholarship but also into their further education and careers. We want our alumni to benefit from opportunities to develop their skills, to make informed choices about their future, to receive support from professionals who are interested in helping them and to meet like-minded people.
By offering these services, we hope to nurture Sir Peter's vision of encouraging young people to be good citizens and to give something back when they are in a position to do so.
Alumni may be eligible to apply for:
- A trustees’ award: to support independent travel such as gap year voluntary work, study abroad, exchanges and research trips.
- An Ogden summer internship: for paid placements in university research or outreach, commercial or voluntary sector.
Further information can be found in our Alumni Members’ area.
